Simple Tape-Manicure Nails

Sometimes, the right polishes and the simplest idea make for some stunning nail looks :)

I loved wearing today's nails, 'cause they were all that: simple to make, with great colours and gorgeous to look at.

While I love all the complicated patterns one can make with stripping tape, I can't help but a-do-re this simple one.


vernizes Inocos


I started with a base of Inocos Pipoca à Chuva, which is the most gorgeous metallic blue shade I've worn lately. I love how luminous it is!

I then applied a piece of stripping tape to the middle of each nail and layered my base with Inocos Pipoca de Galochas, which has gotten me head over heels just as much.
These two are so perfect together, they ought to be soul mates :)



How about you? Do you also get this excited when you nail a great colour combo?
And how do you feel about stripping tape - do you go for crazy, maze like designs or do you prefer the simplest ones, such as this? Let me know!
